I thought this book had very good content and was organized in an easy to follow format. I was very disappointed with the numerous spelling and grammatical errors however. In reading just the cardiac and pulmonary units I found several crucial errors that gave wrong information. These errors make it difficult for students to learn critical care nursing correctly. If they correct these errors in the eight edition, this will be a very good critical care book for students.
